30th Anniversary Of The End Of WWIII

 Apologies people, I even forgot it myself, but yesterday was the 30th anniversary of the end of WWIII. This was also known as the "Cold War", which sometimes it was, punctuated by periods of decidedly hot war, this one was my war from one of the hot periods in Viet Nam, to the final collapse of the Soviet Union, Dec 25th, 1991. At the collapse, I was employed by  one of the large Aerospace companies, and was working on some aspects of Ronald Reagans Star Wars incentive.

Reagan and the American people were opposed by Mikhail Gorbachev, Ted Kennedy, Tip O'Neil, and a democrat controlled legislature. The Dems didn't want to be seen as weak on defense, but they also held the Soviet system in high regard. They still do. They would allow monies for studies of only the parts that seemed to have the smallest chance of success. Having had a front-row seat in the engineering biz, my observation was that it took us only about 6 months to go from "that'll never fly" to having a working prototype ready to test. The Russians noticed this as well and made a policy of immediately throwing roubles at whatever they thought might counter the American inventions. This quickly bankrupted the Soviet Union. 

We are now fully involved in WW4.

Elon Musk seems to have tweeted this, which came out highly compressed and pretty much unreadable. Several others came up with larger, more readable versions, and I rearranged it into 5 pages which you can print in landscape format if you like, and read easily in any case.

End Of Pandemic!

 Not only has our governor announced the end of the pandemic, but one (so far) head of state has joined the movement.

New Zealand PM Arden has issued a return to normal statement:

eTurboNews reported, in an article headlined, "Sex orgies of up to 25 people are OK now in New Zealand," that it was an "unexpected early Christmas present" when Ardern made the announcement.

the drawback is that getting into NZ in the first place may be difficult so allow plenty of time for a quarantine stay in a hotel which may itself permit up to 25 of its guests to pass the time in whatever manner they see fit. Call in advance.

Fun With Headlines - Statues

 From this mornings New York Times newsletter:

A statue of Robert E. Lee that once stood in Charlottesville, Va. — and was the focus of a 2017 white nationalist rally — will be melted down for a new artwork.

I can just imagine the new artwork in the form of a whip-wielding black slave owner, driving a team of 6 white libs in man-buns and purple hair, laboring mightily to drag a large box (bale?) of ballots to a counting center. Can't see the NYT finding anything wrong with this. In fact, I challenge the NYT to front the modest sum of money required to build this on a cost plus fixed fee basis. That is all costs to the actual artisans, plus a fixed fee, say $100K, to me as the brains behind this work of art.

Crime Waves

 Down in Pueblo, the cops are complaining that just catching crooks isn't helping since if the theft amounts to under $2000, all they can do is write a ticket. At some point, the public will decide that if the local government won't let the police do their jobs, then the civic duty would be to step up and help out.

Yeah, I know, the vulgar term for this is vigilantism. So what. It's also law enforcement for when the state cannot or will not enforce the law. So when someone breaks in to your house or business, you simply plug them and with a little help from your grateful neighbors, bag 'em in a large construction bad, and deposit the trash a reasonable distance from the scene of the crime.

If there's 2 or more of them, see if you can catch them in the driveway, plug all of them, and tell the cops they were arguing over dividing the spoils, and a fight broke out. Stick with this story, the cops will back you up unless they're in on the heist, and everyone will be the better for it. The mayor may lose 2 or 3 votes in the next election, but tough luck for him. 

Fun With Headlines - Viagra!

 Here's a noteworthy headline:

Taking Viagra reduces risk of Alzheimers by 69%

I told my wife about this. She was not impressed. My question is weather this is a cause or an effect. Does Viagra improve your cognitive abilities, or is it your cognitive abilities, reacting to some of the effects of aging, that drives you to Viagra?

NICS checks - Yup, Back To Normal

 Nice to see the curve drop back to its expected place finally:

Now, if the industry could just catch up with the backed up demand for components. I need 2000 small pistol primers to get me past the panic.

Then there's the Rittenhouse verdict, which will probably have some impact on it all. I guess there's motivation to get a gun if you think the government won't be of any help in a pinch, with some added incentive that you run a reduced risk of prosecution for protecting your life.

There's also now an inflation incentive. Thinking that the $55 gun you were considering will be $600 fairly shortly, gives you some motivation to get it while the getting is good.

Fun With Headlines - Waukesha

 CNN has a way with words, don't you think? Wayne Dupree found this tweet and made a copy before it could be removed:

/s/ Horrible, isn't it the way that rouge SUV rampaged through the parade, killing 6 and injuring 40+? On top of being the root cause of global warming, and probably masterminding the development of the Covid virus, the things are now engaged in mass murder. /s/

Covid Vaccine - What Exactly Does It Do?

 Here's a piece from WND that suggests that the typical Covid vaccine which by no we know isn't actually a vaccine in the traditional sense, may do its thing at the expense of parts of the rest of your immune system.

Vaccinated people under age 60 are dying from all causes at twice the rate of the unvaccinated in the United Kingdom, according to data compiled by the British government.

"I don’t know how to explain this other than vaccine-caused mortality," wrote former New York Times reporter Alex Berenson on his Substack page.

Note the words "all causes" in there. I would hope that doesn't include things like death due to drunk driving accidents, but you never know. To me it suggests that some of the debilities resultant from getting the vax are a result of a degradation of the immune system, resulting in a higher death rate. 

As is usual with Covid related statistics, credibility should be very low, still...

Fallout From Rittenhouse

 Not really unexpected, but as an example of the far left complaining about the verdict in the Rittenhouse trial. here's one by Cas Muddle (pen name) in which the poor traumatized fellow opines that the verdict gives right-wing vigilantes the right to hunt down and shoot innocent progressives.

He displays an impressive ignorance of the constitution, which rather tarnishes his creds as a journalist, by failing to note that under the Equal privileges' and immunities clause, if the conservatives are somehow granted the right to ruthlessly hunt down mostly peaceful protesters, then the same privilege would also apply to the left, giving them the right to drive by a Republican gathering, hose them down with bullets, then claim "self defense", should they get arrested.

This is the same M.O. used by Muslims who might stab an unbeliever to death, then, when they are convicted of murder, whine most piteously about oppression of practitioners of the one true faith.

The Royal Succession - American

 A friend of mine opined about our countries current leadership:

I sometimes wonder how long the people actually running things will keep him around. But then I read about how Harris is out of favor in the White House too. I suppose Biden will remain useful as a figurehead, but as time goes on, his public appearances will become more limited. 

As a sock puppet for Pelosi and Schumer, he's about reached his limit. When things begin to fail, as socialist programs do, he will be shuffled off to a nursing home and never heard from again. This is much like Peter the Great, who, when a program failed, announced that several of his ministers had been beheaded. This without telling anyone that he had appointed several heads of cabbage from his garden to ministerial posts for just that situation.

The Dems problem is that the black, female, gay, unborn whale they placed on the ticket to Hoover up a few more votes, is about as qualified to be president as one of Czar Peters cabbages. Having painted themselves into this corner, they first need to replace Kamel-toe with a somewhat more sentient cabbage first, then shuffle grandpa off to parts unknown, placing someone who may well have never even run for president in the Oval office.

One presumes that whomever is running Joe will be running his replacement for as long as necessary. I've seen rumors that Kammy may get appointed to the Supreme Court to get her off the succession list, but that even frightened the left. So think of a prestigious but meaningless job for the Veep so she can be replaced without the party having to admit she was nothing but a figurehead in the first place. Climate Minister perhaps, which would involve giving her a plane, a staff, and an itinerary of meeting with every head of state of no consequence to get her picture taken and sign a climate agreement that gives them a few million to use to improve the climate in their country. New air conditioning in the presidential palace, perhaps.

Her replacement: Pete Buttplug has been put forward, but seeing the job he did with the national supply chain, the reaction has been mostly giggles. Schiff and Nadler would no doubt be interested, but they've already cemented their reputations as pompous jerks and probably wouldn't help the party in 24. Hillary has also been suggested, most likely by people on her own staff.

Say! How about Gavin Newsom, the man who made California what it is today? He could be President by 2022!

Vote Fraud? Maybe Not Quite

 In the NJ race for the State Senate, truck driver Durr famously beat long time incumbent Sweeney by 2000 votes. All the way up to someone "finding" some 12,000 more ballots that put Sweeney ahead. From a newsletter I get:

The race between Sweeney and Edward Durr was called late Thursday morning by the Associated Press. There were roughly 2,000 votes between them and 100% of precincts reporting. Durr led by 32,742 votes, or 51.8%, while Sweeney trailed with 30,444, or 48.2%.

“The results from Tuesday’s election continue to come in, for instance there were 12,000 ballots recently found in one county,” Sweeney said in an email, not naming the county. “While I am currently trailing in the race, we want to make sure every vote is counted. Our voters deserve that, and we will wait for the final results.”

It later transpired that those 12.000 votes came from a county that had already submitted an identical number of ballots, distributed in exactly the same proportions. It was rapidly discovered that they were the same ballots that had already been counted, and when removed, put Durr back where he was before. 

Note to Sweeney: Counting votes twice is NOT the same as a recount.

NICS Checks - October, back to normal?

 NICS checks have gone down yet again as it would appear that the panic buying over the 2020-21 span has somehow sated the publics desire to provide some modicum of its own security:

At this point, one would expect to see a bit of an uptick in gun sales as the Christmas buying season is upon us. Of course I could be wrong, and the rapidly increasing inflation is transferring discretionary monies from firearms to groceries. Of course if Republicans start winning elections (don't laugh, it could happen!) the lefts militias might be re-released to burn down some city centers which might inspire another surge in gun sales. Who knows?

Medical Stuff

 I mentioned some Atrial Fibrillations to my doctor, and I am now fitted with a heart monitor. This is a small (2" high, 1" wide, 3/4" deep) sensor attached with high-strength, waterproof tape to the upper middle of my chest, and a semi-smart phone clipped to my belt. I get to wear this for 30 days. If the sensor company detects anything they think is abnormal, they will call me on my regular cell phone, attached to the other hip, and ask me what's up. If I detect anything I think they should know about, I can use the app on their phone to briefly describe it. All I need is an illuminated star on a hat to complete the Christmas tree similarity.

Could be worse. I had envisioned a complex bunch of wires and sensors, connected to a shoe-box sized device that would detect and report anything that happened to me and download a report on it to my medical file, located somewhere in North Korea.

Imagine this rig detecting something they interpret as a heart attack, and immediately responding with a jolt from the onboard defibrillator. Life saving, no? Imagine going out to an IDPA match wearing this thing, and having it interpret my first 2 shots on a stage as a heart attack. Imagine firing your first 2 shots on the first target, and having the defibrillator kick in as you line up on the second one, causing you to run the next 8 or 9 rounds off at 600 rpm. The good news I guess would be that when you empty your magazine, the machine would interpret this as successful treatment of the heart attack, and shut itself off. The bad news is that standard mag capacity for a pistol caliber carbine, such as I shoot, is 30 rounds. I suppose I would be grateful that no one makes a magazine for my gun bigger than 16 rounds.

Saturday, we will see if the sensor I'm wearing is affected by gunfire.

Doing Away With Colorados Income Tax?

 The Independence Institute is now promoting the idea of eliminating Colorados income tax, which is currently a flat rate of 4.5%. This is a modest rate nationally, and works out well as it's easy to calculate.

The other side of this argument is that states without an income tax somehow are more successful than states with one. Texas and Florida, for example, have no income tax. Nice, but they are also run by Republicans, which in the grand scheme of things seems to be a better indicator of a states success than the presence or absence of the income tax.

Look at one more thing here: TABOR. This feature in our constitution, says that the Colorado legislature cannot impose a tax or alter the rates of existing taxes without approval by the electorate. The legislature, and all lower lawmaking bodies know perfectly well how proposals to raise taxes fare when the public gets a voice in their imposition. The solution here is to call everything a "fee" and thus exempt it from scrutiny.

Now we all understand that governments need money. Those Trains, busses, windmills, and public housing for drug addicts don't build themselves, and all those people who don't want to work need to be supported by those who do, so we have taxes. Or fees.

Let's suppose this idea comes to fruition. The income tax revenues disappear, and must be replaced by fees. The fees will initially be modest, and will initially be insufficient, and so must be raised. Probably a lot. Of course if you find you can't afford $500/year for a license plate, you can always sell off your car and use public transportation. Harbor Freight also sells collapsible wagons which should help on your grocery store trips. Maybe RTD will update their vehicles to make getting them on and off easier. An increase in the public transit fee will pay for the upgrades which should be fully installed in no more than 5 years.

Hopefully, someone will amend the implementation to exclude motorbikes and cycles from fee increases, so the less affluent will still be able to afford to drive to whatever job they can find that are not conveniently located along a bus route. NOTE: A typical 20-30 minute commute by motor vehicle, typically takes about 1-1/2 hours by public transport. 

Not that I don't favor the idea of changing Colorados tax structure, I do. I just don't trust the people who would be in charge of making the changes.

Fun With Headlines - Armaments

 Here's one that's going around: From WND:

China rocks the world with missile that circled globe before dropping on target.

OK kiddies, here's a clue. Go on Wickipedia, and look up "Silbervogel" which the Nazis looked into back in 1942 as a method to bomb the U.S. by traveling at hypersonic speeds, bouncing off the stratosphere several times, and landing in Japan.

Terrifying new superweapon, indeed. Here's a bit more on that. Seems the thing still needs a bit of work:

The test went like this: China launched a rocket carrying what is known as a hypersonic glide vehicle. The missile circled the earth in a low orbit toward its target, which it missed by roughly 25 miles.

Notwithstanding that close only counts in horseshoes, hand grenades, and nuclear weapons, 25 miles is generally considered a miss in the nuclear weapons department.

The Greenest Candidate In Europe

 Marine Le Pen has been consistently denounced by the leftist media in France for not endorsing any lefty positions, but now proposes an easy way to get France to zero carbon power production at probably the lowest cost in Europe by scrapping all wind and solar installations, and making the country fully nuclear.

Just imagine, a major European country, NOT dependent on Russia for its energy. Naturally the Greenies oppose this.

Gerrymandering In Colorado

 Here is a breakdown of our new congressional districts as submitted by the all new and certifiably neutral committee on redistricting:

This doesn't look all that bad. It seems to allocate 3 districts to Republicans, 3, 4, and 5, and 3 to the Dems, 1. 2. and 6, while leaving 7 and 8 quite competitive. Overall, this is better than I had expected. 

Worth noting is that the Dems have an easier time harvesting ballots, which is legal here, since large numbers of their constituents live communally in jails, institutions, and nursing homes.  What Republicans need is more candidates named Brandon, as the chant of "Let's Go, Brandon!" seems to be quite popular this year.

Not everyone is favorably impressed.

Tuesday, October 5, 2021


 How do you, as an elected representative, make it look to your constituents like you're doing something useful, while assiduously supporting the status quo?


Was there any problem with the 2020 elections? Of course there was! 1: It was an election, 2: there was a lot at stake, and 3: the odds of getting caught were low. So yes, there was chicanery. So what? There's always some of that, but in 2020, it was so blatant, it was impossible to ignore. So what do we do? We investigate!

Oh yes! We Audit the dickens out of certain state elections, and discover all sorts of funny business going on, but we fail to do a complete investigation because some of the players simply refuse to comply with the investigators. Ex: Maricopa County, where the Dominion corp, supplier of the voting machines that famously changed vote totals at 2 AM on Nov 4th in several states, simply refused to let anyone evaluate their software on the grounds that it was a proprietary secret. Sure. Bernie Sanders' business plan was too. 

Now there's a call for widespread audits of the 2020 vote in multiple states, which, while probably a good idea, will likely be stalled by Secretaries of State who will have NO interest in anyone seeing how they got elected. Thus while some audits may be started, you can rest assured that none will be completed before the 2022 elections are over and in the bag. Thus we will all be assured that lack of convictions before the election is proof that no tomfoolery went on during the election, and everyone who got elected did so fairly, except perhaps a few whose results will need recounting until the right candidate is shown to be the winner.

Or am I just being overly cynical in my old age?

Reproduction Laws

If you don't like the abortion law recently passed in Texas, consider this little gem recently proposed in Pennsylvania.

The bill will force men to undergo vasectomies within 6 weeks from having their third child or their 40th birthday, whichever comes first.

This legislation includes a $10,000 reward to whoever snitches to the proper authority on those who have failed to submit to forced sterilization within the allotted time.

All the best ideas come from China, don't they, comrade? 

NICS Checks for September

Sorry this is late, but I was off at a Science Fiction convention watching fighting robots.

The curve continues to underperform last year, as the Democrats have magically turned off their brownshirts in celebration of the alleged election of their best and brightest.

I wonder if they learned that unleashing terrorists on the general public is really a bad idea? I now expect a slow increase in sales heading toward the end of the year as people look to spend increasingly worthless money on commodities that will hold their value.

Recent reports of a significant upsurge in violent crime pretty much across the board will likely support an uptick. The uptick in violent crime is pretty much a lagging indicator that the Lefts policy of emptying out the jails to protect the inmates from Covid is putting the rest of us at significant risk from the newly freed inmates.

Winter is icumen in,
Lhude sing Goddamm,
Raineth drop and staineth slop,

Freezeth river, turneth liver,

Sing goddamm, damm, sing goddamm,

Gerrymandering Colorado

 Here's the voter spread for the proposed new congressional districts. It doesn't look as bad as I had expected with 3 Dem, 3 Rep, and 2 actually pretty competitive.

Interesting to note that regardless of any tilt in registrations between the D's and R's, the largest affiliation is a very consistent low 40's showing for unaffiliated. This seems to show that on the whole, voters are unimpressed with both parties. With unlimited ballot harvesting being allowed, those 2 competitive districts, 7 and 8, could easily become Dem blowouts unless the Reps get organized and learn to play the game, an outcome for which I hold little hope.

Easy Solutions

 The U.S. has denied permission for a plane load of Americans and Afghan green card holders to land anywhere in the United States. Passengers have been stuck on the modestly sized first plane for 14 hours awaiting a bureaucratic solution to their problem, while an easy and practical solution sits right in front of them.

Simply re-route the home bound leg of the flight to Mexico, specifically to an airport on the U.S. border, from which arriving passengers can pick up their luggage, catch a cab to the border, and walk across, no questions asked. Once across, noting that they already have all the documents needed to be in the U.S., they simply call an Uber or meet a chartered bus to take them into the nearest town. Voila! Problem solved.

Automotive Chip Problems - QOTD

 This article note from Fortune magazine:

Chipmakers to carmakers: Get out of the Stone Age. (Fortune)

Carmakers to chipmakers: Your old chips actually fucking worked. Well, not worked as such, but failed in documented ways. It takes years to validate a new design, and not taking the time to do that validation could get people killed.

An all-out effort to get on and hold the cutting edge is all well and good, up to a point, but it can easily get to where your technology is so edgy that it fails in unexpected and undocumented ways that are difficult and expensive to fix. If you want to inflict an example of this on yourself, simply buy a 5 year old exotic(ish) luxury car and watch the dashboard periodically light up with messages of dire import, requiring a visit to the dealer with a minimum charge of $1500 just to visit them.


Immigration Policy

 At this point, I would not be overly surprised to see a picture of a PLA brigade, infantry, artillery, and armor, lined up at the border near Tijuana, to get their free California drivers licenses and (Democrat) voter registration cards.

Governor Newsom would be welcoming them as a replacement for the "racist, homophobic, sexist, etc, etc, police departments" now being dismissed all over the state.

(Not) Made In China?

 Here's a bit from the Financial Post that brings up some points I wasn't aware of.

There are some 846 registered automobile manufacturers in China, and more than 300 of them churn out new-energy cars, loosely defined as electric vehicles or plug-in hybrids. The vast majority are names unrecognizable elsewhere. In 2020 alone, the country added new production capacity of around 5 million units, about four times the actual number of EVs sold in China that year. According to regulators, almost half that capacity wasn’t in use.

This sounds a lot like where the West was in the 1920's. Hundreds of manufacturers, and not enough buyers to support them all. Also the matter of some of them being not high enough quality to survive anyway, and some being so high they priced themselves out of the market.

BOR Anniversary

 From the RKBA newsletter I get:

Today in History: In 1787, the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia approves the constitution for the United States of America. (Note that the Bill of Rights appears as the first ten amendments, finalized on September 25, 1789 and ratified on December 15, 1791. The Anti-Federalists demanded the subsequent addition of a bill of rights as a condition for ratification of the initial constitution. The oft forgotten Ninth Amendment – The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people – was intended to counter the disingenuous Federalist argument that the creation of a federal bill of rights would imply that Congress had the power to infringe any rights not specifically enumerated therein.)

Stephen P. Wenger, W2MRA
My comment:

The argument is hardly disingenuous; An entire political party is based on the supposition that the words “but” and “except” are implied at the end of each amendment, and that limitations may be applies freely and without limit if even the flimsiest excuse can be manufactured.

Treat the BOR like it's a bill of privileges', and people start getting nervous. Let select groups riot without consequences, and they start becoming rooftop Koreans.  Here's a piece from an ammo supplier on how this has been affecting their sales. It's been really good to be an ammo supplier, provided of course, you have some ammo to sell. A cagy Taliban could find a few dozen pallets of 5.56 and 9mm and sell the stuff back to dealers in the U.S. for enough to retire comfortably on.

Studying Machiavelli

Everyone should have a copy of The Prince to hand in their book collection. It embodies the essence of every managerial course you're apt to take to get your MBA except the accounting. Labor-Management relations, HR issues etc, etc. If you don't have one, run down to a used book store and pick one up. I got the paperback for $.10.

In one of my favorite chapters he discusses the methodology of doing distasteful things, which from time to time every manager is forced to do. One of the examples was that of a noble who had successfully engineered a “hostile takeover” of some neighboring territory, and was anxious to win the love of the people of the new lands. This would not be easy, as a hostile takeover in the 1500's was quite literally a hostile act involving armies and battles. Following a victory, the winner had to move quickly to minimize dissent and deal with potential rivals among his former enemies.

To this end, the victorious prince sent one of his ambitious underlings to govern the new lands with orders to crack down hard and make sure everyone understood that no dissent would be tolerated. High taxes and public executions became the order of the day. After 6 months of this, the new prince came to visit the former capitol city in person.

His first act was to greet his deputy, and lock him up. He then went about town asking how things were going, and was told of the harsh rule and high taxes. Terrible conditions. He then called a big gathering in the town square where he assured everyone that he never intended to be anything but Mr Nice Guy, and that the doings of his underling were outrageous and unwarranted. To prove he meant well and would tolerate no abuse of his new subjects, he had the underling, whose tongue had been cut out the night before, brought out and executed by chopping him in half. He also lowered taxes back to levels similar to what they had been and was immediately acclaimed to be a swell fellow by all.

Now move forward to 2020. The Dems win an election, tainted by suggestions of foul play, and elect a demented meat puppet by the greatest margin ever. He, or more properly, the committee running him, proceed to undo everything his predecessor did, alienating about half the country, opens the southern border to anyone, no questions asked, while issuing demands to regular citizens, and imposing huge tax increases and extending regulations to micromanage everyones lives. He gives one of our enemies $80B in military gear, and throws in a couple hundred hostages in case he forgot anything and makes loyalty to his party the big item to consider for military promotions.

Remember that Mr. Biden is NOT the prince here, he's the ambitious underling. The next step, after the worst of the damage is done is the public execution, which in the here and now, will be a low key thing. Also keep in mind that Mrs Harris is also NOT the prince either, and will be run by the same committee as her predecessor. She will be in the position to roll back some of the more egregious insults from Mr Biden, and win a great roar of approval from the adoring press and anyone who still believes anything they say. This is about 30% of the population, currently. With all this favorable coverage, we will be told that polls show overwhelming support for the party, and no one should be surprised to see Dems sweep the 2022 elections by about 5% everywhere. Voting is going on right now in California where Republicans are reporting that they are being told, when they show up to vote, that they have already voted. Anyone want to guess who they've already voted for? No?

The Value Of Women

 In Afghanistan anyway, the price is quite low as people are discovering that with the Taliban firmly in charge, there is little work to be had. 

“I received an offer from a shop owner, a man I knew had no children,” Nazir continued. “He offered 20,000 afghans [Afghan currency, AFN] for my daughter Safia to live with him and work in his shop. If I ever get the 20,000 Afghans to buy her back, he said I could. But I can’t sell my daughter for that low a price, so I asked for 50,000. We are still discussing. She may have a better future working in a shop than staying with me, and the price may save my family.”

50,000 AFN is roughly $576.43

Taliban have been in charge now for only a couple of weeks. Care to speculate what a child might bring come winter?

Giving Away The Farm

 Latest news suggests that Pres* Biden is not only giving the Taliban $80Bn in military hardware, he's also throwing in 6 planeloads of hostages in case they think of anything else they want. A canny terrorist would promise to return all 6 planes in return for a public statement from Slo Joe acknowledging defeat, the superiority of Islam, and a promise to convert himself. The terrorist would then let 3 planes go before thinking of additional demands that need to be met.

On the Chinese front, Joe is proposing to reduce or eliminate the penalties for dealing in Fentanyl. Emperor Xi will no doubt appreciate the gesture, and offer a seat in the Belt and Road Club in return for a large shipping port and airport facility on Catalina Island.

Abolishing The 1st Amendment

 You do this like you abolish everything else: A little bit at a time. Someone burns down downtown in support of your party, you call for abolition of the police. If someone visits the capitol in support of the opposition party, you throw them in solitary until they agree to cop to something you can give them extra time for. If the people picked up, the day after the demonstration, turn out to be operatives from your party, you drop any charges and quietly send them home.

A few here, a few there, make a big deal out of the ones hardest to identify with, and the rest will fall in line. The Chinese are a bit ahead of us here. If you criticize the Emperor, or become more popular than him, you get picked up and held until you are ready to publicly acknowledge his superiority. If you don't or can't, you stay disappeared. A generous donation to the Emperors piggy bank probably doesn't hurt either.

/s/ Let me state here that President Biden was fairly elected by 85 million citizens, all of whom actually exist and are not dead, who recognized that Mr. Biden was the best and brightest the country has to offer, and that his running mate is eminently qualified to step in and manage things should this ever become necessary. /s/

NICS Checks - Returning To Normalcy?

 Here's the August update, note it's still below last year, but significantly up from 2019. Having installed their sock puppet in the White House, the DNC Militias (Antifa and BLM) have been switched off, resulting in reduced gun sales.

If nothing untoward happens, I would expect sales to see a slow uptick going into December. I suppose it's even possible that ammunition manufacture might even begin to catch up with demand, although Slo Joe's move to shut off Russian ammo sales will serve to aggravate the shortages. One of my favorite memes comes from Walt Kellys Pogo comic: The shortages will be divided among the peasants.

Invoking Papal Infallibility - Elections


SOS Griswold is assuming the mantle of papal infallibility, and is spreading it over every clerk and recorder in the state.

She categorically forbids any audit of any sort of the electoral process, and declares that if any voting machines actually get looked at, they become "unclean" for any future use.

If the process were half as clean as she claims, an occasional audit would only confirm it and give everyone a warm, fuzzy feeling. Forbidding any audit of any kind is kind of a large red flashing sign that there's something she wants to keep hidden.

Making a problem worse

 (X)DE is an abbreviation for (something) dependency enhancement and describes a situation when the attack on a problem succeeds in only making it worse. Dealing with a problem in such a way as to make it worse is an old concept. It includes making antibiotics available to treat some disease, STDs for example, at a high enough price that do it yourself treatment usually doesn't completely finish it, but leaves the more resistant bacteria behind. Saw lots of this in Viet Nam. The other example is fighting a war in incremental stages, and giving the enemy time to adapt to your methods. Again, LBJ did this in Viet Nam, dragging the war out interminably. Everyone did this in Afghanistan trying to avoid being called a bully by the non-participants. The Chinese are next up. I don't think they'll make that mistake.

Thought Crimes

 This fellow was photographed at the capitol on Jan 6. He was arrested at his home on Jan 8, and has been in jail for 6 months with no charges filed.

The judge let him out if he promised to have no contact with any electronic communications, but he was caught watching Mike Lindell on his phone.

According to court documents that were filed on Thursday, Jensen had been found by officers menacingly “streaming news” to a “wi-fi” connected device in his garage all by himself.

 If the North Koreans catch you listening to South Korean radio, you go directly to prison, but they at least allow you to take your whole immediate family with you.

Afghanis Are Now Safe: Taliban Begins Imposing Gun Control

 Great soon-to-be unreported story in the making. As the Taliban now go door-to-door looking for specific enemies, they are also confiscating personally owned weapons, stating that with the defeat of America, the Afghani people are now safe and no longer need personal weapons.

Taliban jihadists reportedly began seizing personal weapons from Afghans in Kabul on Sunday, claiming civilians “can now feel safe” and no longer need the firearms because the terrorists had taken over the country.

Expect jubilant stories in the American press celebrating the peace and freedom being enjoyed by the Afghan people now that they no longer have a need to own personal weapons.

Biological Warfare

 Here's a piece from Epoch Times, behind their paywall, that describes the confiscation of large quantities of fake vaccination certificates. From China, no less, who supplied some number of pre-filled out ballots in the last election. 

You'd almost think they wanted infected persons to distribute themselves as widely as possible in an effort to get the U.S. economy to shut itself down.

Failing that, they could support the electric car movement, since they supply most of the batteries, and oppose the Gen 4 nuclear power effort, which they are rapidly developing. Nothing like watching the Americans blow out their power grid trying to recharge 100M golf carts every night when the solar panels, which they sold us, aren't working.

Covid - We're All Gonna Die!

 Sooner or later, we all die. Data from Massachusetts suggests that later is still a good estimate.

More than 4.3 million Massachusetts residents out of the state’s population of about 6.9 million have been vaccinated. One hundred breakthrough deaths, therefore, represent 0.002 percent of all fully vaccinated individuals.

The 82.5-year-old median age of the deaths is about five years older than the U.S. average life expectancy, which is 77.3 years old as of last year.

Can I interpret this to suggest that if you get vaccinated, then catch the Kung Flu anyway, you're likely to live about 5 years longer than average? Or would that be statistic abuse?

Monday, August 9, 2021


 A report on Breitbart says that some 20% of migrants apprehended along the border are testing positive for covid.  They also say that the July take was about 200,000 so we are currently importing some 40,000 covid cases per month. 

And this is based only on apprehensions. I wonder what the actual total of illegal crossings is?

So when you see the numbers for total new cases each month, don't forget, 40K of those were imported by Biden.

NICS Checks - No Record, But Still High

 So here's the July update. Not near last years BLM riot panic, but 42% up from 2 years ago.

And because I collect this sort of data here's the July year-on-year graph:

QOTD - History

 From Ace of Spades:

The Boston Tea Party: Tax us without representation and we will destroy the goods meant to be taxed.

Lexington and Concord: Come take our guns and we will kill you.

 Here's an egregious example of racism if ever I saw it: Michael Avenatti got 2-1/2 years for extortion trying to shake down Exxon for some sort of climate crime, and yet Al Sharpton, having made his entire career out of extorting people and corporations on a race basis, is still a free man.

Mr. Avenatti has a good basis for getting his conviction overturned on the basis of disproportionate impact on white people.

Lies, Damn Lies, And Polls

This poll suggests that Coloradans love being East California and all that entails, but... 

I am suspicious of a poll showing large majorities in favor of rapidly increasing taxes, including fees, high unemployment, large homeless encampments, a new taxing zone for a high speed rail corridor, restrictions on charter schools, etc, etc. When you take a poll, you poll large numbers of people, and sort them by political affiliation, then adjust their weighting to match, say, the turnout from the last election. As well, the poll runs an incumbent against an unknown opponent, never a winning proposition.

Now let's assume that Colorado used the same Dominion voting machines and tabulators that gave Dems a 2-5% boost across the board. One could be left with the idea that there are a lot more "Bernie boys" in this state than there actually are, and that thus, far left positions are much more popular than in actual fact. This can also bias later polls which would be weighted to match fraudulent voter data. Done carefully, this sort of thing can convince the majority that they're in the minority, and depress their turnout in elections, and convince them to leave the state.

This Rassmussen poll suggests that the far left is far less popular than the media would have you believe. The trick here is to get honest polling data out to the electorate to give them some confidence that they are not lonesome voices crying in the wilderness.

UPDATE: I seem to have been right.



Human Nature

 Rather depressing, but probably true, these 20 observations by a British rapper.

Science Marches Onward! - Alcohol!

 For a change, here's some news about alcohol that doesn't involve burning it. Seems this fellow has come up with a way to turn alcoholic beverages into something resembling ice cream, or at least soft serve.

Yeah, I know, the purists among us will denounce this as alcohol abuse, especially as it seems to work about as well with single malt Scotch as it does with beer of any sort. The extremes though probably are alcohol abuse on the one end of that spectrum, and reportedly abuse of the consumer on the other, so if you but one of his machines (about $6000-$7000) don't pour in either Glenfiddich or Coors Lite.

CCP 100th Anniversary

 Big celebrations all over the country on the august occasion.

It also appears, even though accurate records are a state secret, that the CCP has averaged 1 million murders per year over the last 100 years, to keep itself in power.

Fun With Headlines - The Clintons

 I Own The World has this one up:

Judge approves unsealing of documents linking Ghislaine Maxwell to Clintons

Let me say right now that Judge Loretta Preseka did NOT kill herself. There! Tomorrows news today with the accuracy of Izvestia and the credibility of Pravda!

NICS Checks - Back To Normal?

 The numbers for June are in, and I have to note that they are coming in earlier than they used to. I guess in off-election years, the FBI has little else to do when not hounding Republicans, so they get the routine stuff done in a timely manner. 

Looking at the curves, this months number comes in about where you'd expect it to if last years curve had been where you'd expect that to be. 

The 2020 curve had approximately the right shape, except for a big surge during the summer that corresponded to the "mostly peaceful" demonstrations in large urban areas. This year, the leaders of the demonstrations are being installed in high government positions, and with the big salaries and access to whomever is controlling the president, there are fewer peaceful riots.

On the positive side, there is now a faint possibility that ammunition manufacture will begin to catch up with demand. The problem is that if demand drops back to "normal", existing capacity may be enough to keep up. This reduces the benefit of building a new manufacturing plant or expanding an older one. The other problem, on the horizon, is legal requirements to put serial numbers on every bullet so that when Crip A shoots Blood B, the authorities will know which gun store the ammunition was stolen from, and will move quickly to shut it down, preventing law-abiding citizens from defending themselves from the criminals.

Politicians who boast about taking such actions get re-elected by slightly larger margins than their previous effort. To find out the margin ask the head of DNC what margin he/she/it told Dominion to have their candidate win by.

Local Control - Colorado

 Jon Caldera has a nice piece up at Complete Colorado describing in great detail what the notion of "local control" means to Democrats. Bottom line, the state can make living here as onerous as they want, and localities are permitted to make it worse. But only worse.

For myself, I've been ready to decamp to a freer location for the last 10 years as I see Colorado becoming East California, and no real chance of it ever being reversed. After all, our Secretary of State has assured us that we have the cleanest election process in the country, and it's so free of taint that she has issued a ruling that it shall be illegal to investigate any aspect of it.

The reason I'm still here is my spouse, who sees proximity to her sister and daughter as being worth any inconvenience the state wants to impose. She reminds me of a prisoner in the State pen who has served his sentence, but doesn't want to leave because all his friends are there.

Reparations Part 2

 In a previous post I discussed calculating reparations based on the difference in income of an average black household in the U.S. vs that of an average household in, say, Nigeria. I think I figured the U.S. blacks owed us some $40-odd thousand dollars each.

Now here's some more info that should muddy the waters sufficiently as to make who owes whom a near impossibility to actually figure out. I knew about William Ellison, but not about the other stories

How Bad Is It?

 Not here, for a change, but 2 stories coming out at the same time, on the same topic, makes you wonder. First there seems to be a famine going on in North Korea. This doesn't strike me as particularly unusual, but pictures of 'Lil Kim are showing him noticeably thinner. This following his tearful confession that things are tight, food-wise, and he blames himself. Now the news is that there is a larger than average food shortage, at least in part brought on by the closure of the border with China. Rare indeed to see a Communist admit that the current plan isn't working.

More along the lines of what I'd expect, is this story announcing that the latest thing among Chinese youth is the practice of "chewing grass" which has multiple interpretations ranging from voluntarily going on a diet, to doing so involuntarily, Coincidentally, this is happening in concert with reports of poor grain harvests, which includes animal feed. Here's a place where the Greens could actually help us. They need to encourage the Chinese to begin blending their gasoline with ethanol, so that like us, a large percentage of their corn crop can be burned in their rapidly growing automobile population.

Fun With Headlines - V.P. Harris

 It was recently reported that Air Force 2 aborted a trip to Guatemala on account of some strange noises heard on takeoff. So far Ms Harris has avoided any trips very far from D.C. presumably so as to be on the spot when Sock Puppet Joe finally can't be held upright through a short speech any more.

I'm speculating that the strange noises in V.P. Harris' plane can be traced to a rattling of loose marbles in Harris' head.

It also seems plausible to me that Nancy Pelosi has outfitter Harris' plans with a bomb to be used while she's speeding back to D.C. The fortunate twofer would make Nancy president.

May NICS Checks - Still Ahead Of The Curve

 After the 2020 riot-induced surge in gun sales, you'd thing it would take an actual outbreak of civil unrest to top those numbers. You'd almost be right. The Marxists got their people into office, and have throttled back on the rioting, ecept in Portland and Minneapolis, of course, and the rush on guns has dropped off a bit. I, personally, wonder if some of the drop off is due to people recognizing that while you can still buy a gun, finding ammo is at best difficult and expensive, and at worst, impossible.

Anyway, here's the latest:

Still ahead of 2020 if only narrowly. Rumor has it that ammo and components may become generally available in 2 years or so.

Pin Pointing Denver Crime

 A study released yesterday includes information on the highest crime areas in Denver, giving locations down to certain street intersections. If you have lived here for a while, most of these come as no particular surprise. 

Those hot spots – which make up only 1.56% of Denver’s landmass (excluding Denver International Airport) – were identified as the following areas:

  • South Federal Boulevard and West Alameda Avenue
  • Colfax Avenue and Broadway
  • Colfax Avenue and Yosemite Street
  • 47th Avenue and Peoria Street
  • MLK Jr. Boulevard and Holly Street

They are posted in no particular order, but the second one really stands out: This particular intersection  is known all over town as a trouble spot, partly because of the persistent homeless encampment on the South West corner, but mostly because of the wholesale theft ring operating out of the building 1 block East of the South East corner, which is also responsible in no small measure for the homeless encampment as well.

Rewriting History

 The Dems are currently making noises about packing the supreme court if the court overturns all or part of Roe v Wade. This would require eliminating the filibuster in the Senate which doesn't currently seem likely, but who knows. 

The other thing going on is the audit currently under way in Georgia that has already turned up evidence of massive fraud to the point that at least one judge is leaning toward invalidating all or part of the 2020 election there. At minimum this could cost one of Georgias new Senators his seat.

Fun With Headlines - Gaza War

 Here's one from ET which is unfortunately behind their paywall, but having read the headline, you don't actually need to read the article:

Israel, Hamas Agree to Ceasefire Over Gaza Conflict: Netanyahu’s Office

Good to see the hostilities winding down. I have to wonder is the notable lack of participation by the Abraham Accords signatories had anything to do with this.

Arabic Word Of The Week - Hudna: Frequently mistranslated as cease-fire, or truce, this work has a much deeper meaning.  Hudna is usually called for by the side of a conflict that isn't doing as well as they'd like. i.e. they're getting their asses kicked. The best translation goes something like this: "O honorable enemy, I am wounded and nearly out of ammunition, Please stop shooting at me for a time while I get medical help, reinforcements, and more ammo!"

The time to ask for this is when you are in a position to defend yourself otherwise the winning side will cheerfully agree to your conditions, and as soon as you are vulnerable, will swoop down on you and kill you to the last man, frequently in very creative and colorful ways.

Domestic Violence?

 I suppose the reasoning goes that since all Americans are just one big (mostly) happy family, any violent incidents will now be classified as domestic violence. Or some such. Like the domestic disturbances that seem to happen nightly in Portland, or the domestic kerfuffles that happen several times a night in Chicago, right? 

The F.B.I. are now calling James Hodgkinsons firing of about 100 rounds at Republicans practicing for a softball game and "domestic violence extremism". This is a revision from a previous assessment of the act as an attempt at "suicide by cop". 

I'm waiting for someone to introduce the " Steve Scalise anti terrorism Bill" to ban the sale of assault weapons, being defined as any firearm capable of holding more than one round, to anyone registered to vote as a Democrat. The Dems shouldn't complain as their greatest accomplishment in this area was the assassination of Republican president Lincoln, which was done with a single-shot pocket pistol.

Restrictions On Getting To Work

 If the Democrats really wanted us to work for a living, you'd think they'd make it easier to do, but no. Gov Polis is proposing restrictions on the number of people at larger worksites that would be permitted to arrive in single occupancy vehicles. 

CDPHE is essentially farming out to large companies enforcement of something it cannot do on its own; tell people they can’t drive their own cars to work.  

Forcing companies to come up with a plan that meets the standards set by CDPHE burdens employers with making employees obey, says McConnell. This could be as simple as saying “carpool or take the bus or get fired” if the costs of compliance are higher than those of finding more compliant employees. 

I seem to have picked a really good time to quit working (retire). I'm also curious, as a motorcycle rider, how many passengers I would have been expected to bring along on my motorbike in order to qualify as a High Occupancy Vehicle under the proposed rules.  

Oh yes, and all this privatized tyranny is being imposed to fight the bogeyman of Global Warming by cutting Colorados carbon footprint by the amount produced by one Chinese coal fired power plant in one day.

The Political Spectrum

 The left seems to have a rather narrow political spectrum, with the Chinese leader Xi Jinping on the left and pictured as the Dems friend at best and just a competitor at worst, and Vlad Putin on the right, Pictured here as an arch conservative and public enemy for his alleged role in getting Trump elected and for his role in freeing the slaves which the Dems still hold a grudge over. 

This does ignore some realities, like the Chinese efforts to stamp out anything that looks like it might become more popular than their government, and the Dems mistake in nominating a very unlikable candidate and then failing to cheat enough to get her elected. 

So there we have it: Xi is a Democrat, and Putin is a Republican, and that's the whole of the political spectrum, from left to right.

Maricopa Update

Here's an article from Gateway Pundit supplementing the 2 items I mentioned 2 posts down, and adding a third. Nothing at all to see here except that for a free and fair election, there seems to be an awful lot of effort being put into covering up exactly how it was conducted, ranging from county commissioners up to the Biden DOJ.

It might be worth remembering that Colorado uses the same equipment and methods as Maricopa County.

What They Say, and Why They Say It

 This could almost be a fun with headlines post, but I'll leave it like this

'Furious' Meghan McCain's Brutal Nickname For Trump Lights Up Twitter

The actual verbiage being referenced is 

“Go ahead in this sausagefest of MAGA up on Capitol Hill, pull her out and put another woman in who will do and say anything you want for President Trump,” McCain said. “See where this lands us in midterms. I’m absolutely furious.”

Now imagine if the affronted person had been "of color":

“Go ahead in this crackerfest of MAGA up on Capitol Hill, pull him/her out and put another POC in who will do and say anything you want for President Trump,” McCain said. “See where this lands us in midterms. I’m absolutely furious.”

Losing her job due to an over willingness to sell out to the other side, and blaming it on sexism. As I have observed before, if a liberal accuses you of racisim, it's a tacit admission of defeat in the argument. This observation seems to be equally valid for sexism, and probably for most, if not all of the other "isms" conservatives get accused of.

Maricopa Audit - Good News and Bad News

 Here's 2 stories about the audit currently plodding along in Maricopa County AZ. First the bad news. The Dems, who have been moving heaven and earth to stop the thing have won an agreement with the Republicans who demanded it in that the auditors will no longer judge ballot validity based on signature matching. That is it now no longer matters if every absentee ballot in the county was signed by the same person.

Next up, the (possibly) good news is that it appears that computer equipment used in the voting and counting had been fitted with removable storage devices that were removed and stored in "undisclosed locations" by "undisclosed persons" who may or may not have been working for either Maricopa county or Dominion Inc. There is no record of custody.

My own uneducated guess would be that someone was warming the hot dogs they were having for lunch on the servers, but I'm assured by the article that those are removable data storage devices.

Dodging The Bullet

 Here is the legal eagle O'Bummer wanted to put on the Supreme court.

Biden’s Attorney General Merrick Garland does not know that I.D. is required to purchase a firearm, despite the undo ‘burden’ it places on prospective buyers.

He thinks we should be requiring an ID to buy a gun, but not to vote. Yeah, Great pick. 

Joe Biden 2.0 - New And Improved!

The above picture is the new Joe Biden 20, currently in the final assembly stages at Boston Dynamics, the world famous maker of robots. In the final version, the head will be replaced with a silicone copy of Biden 1.0 made by Real Dolls, maker of realistic humanoid robots. He will be dressed in a blue suit, and the crystal ball will be replaced with a stack of executive orders. The $1 slot will be replaced by a card/phone reader and will accept donations in increments of $1M. Nancy Pelosi and Susan Rice, highly placed members of the Democrat Party Central committee, say the new version should be quite a bit more reliable than the old one.

The right arm will be fully automated and capable of dashing off a credible signature as long as the document is placed within the alignment markers on the desk top and will even be able to replace the pen in the holder as long as the holder doesn't get bumped out of place. The voice function will be able to change the voice of whomever is speaking from behind the curtains to a perfect replica of the presidents voice with the substitution noticeable only by the lack of gaffes and wandering of the topics.

The Central committee assures us that replacing the president with the vice president, Kamala Harris, will not be necessary with these improvements installed, and in fact, Mr Biden is expected to easily win a second term in 2024 by a 54.65/45.35 margin. People who were worried that the drone of “C'mon man” might be replaced with endless cackling are universally relieved.

Worthy of note, perhaps, is that requests for a complete membership list of the Central Committee, have been met with reactions ranging from mumbling obfuscation to complete silence.

Gun Sales - Another Record!

 Not entirely surprising but the size of the jump is certainly impressive. Aprils NICS check number is up 20% from 2020, and up 50% from 2019. Slo Joe, when backed by the DNC militias, Antifa and BLM, can sell guns at a rate that completely eclipses the former champ, Hillary Clinton.

Used to be you had to look closely to see the difference from one year to the next. Now there's enough space between the curves to park your car in. The good news, for criminals at least, is that the temporary shutdown of Remingtons ammo plant has left people with bunches of brand new guns, and no ammo to use in them. Even reloading components are being consumed by the existing  ammo plants leaving nothing for we frugal few to roll our own with. 

The good news for the rest of us is that the Remington plant is slowly coming back on line. At the rate their going, the worst of the ammo shortage will be easing in about 6 months or so. Meantime, warning shots are a luxury we can no longer afford. Meantime, remember, a well placed shot today means you won't need a makeup shot down the road.
